Why I Network
1 Samuel 10:6 (AMP)
Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will show yourself to be a prophet with them; and you will be turned into another man. 1 Samuel 10:6 (AMP)
The prophet Samuel spoke these words to Saul when he anointed him to be the first king over Israel. He told him three things would occur.
1. He would return to his father (relationship with God)
2. He would receive bread (the Word of God)
3. He would encounter a group of prophets and become like them (the call of God)
The take-a-way for us servant-leaders is this; the anointing on your life is activated when you gather among those with similar gifts and callings. Although Samuel already anointed Saul, Saul did not function in his anointing until he had followed the instructions given by the prophet. Samuel sent Saul immediately to connect with a “camp of prophets coming down from the high place.” It was in that setting where Saul was literally transformed into another person.
Networking is about more than simply finding someone you can relate to. It’s about being transformed through the activation of the anointing inside you. Get around those people and God will change you.
